Default Makita RP2301FCX

Dear All,

Having taken the decision to invest in good router that will be suitable for my current and perceived future needs, I am likely to purchase the Makita RP2301FCX. Before I do so however, I was wondering whether anyone had experience of this router and whether or not people would recommend / not recommend it and their reasons behind this?

Thank you very much for all your help in advance,

I certainly hope you've made your purchase by now but I'll respond anyway.

IMO, the Makita brand in general is very good to excellent, I've not used any of their routers but I do have several tools by them from an ancient 3/8 vsr drill to a demolition hammer with a bevy of saws, sander, hand plane, scms, etc. tucked somewhere in between.

I've been more than pleased with their performance, features and endurance so I resonably expect that this router would offer up the same.

Hi Tom,

Thank you very much for your reply. I have made my purchase and so far I'm very pleased. Obviously it is early days so I have not yet tested every aspect of the router but from what have managed to do I can certainly say the quality is very high and it is very easy to handle. Once I've used the tool more, I will write a some what more extensive review.

Thanks again,
